Pharmacy part of community
Advice and service customers can trust
OPEN since May 2012, Childers Pharmacy has become an important fixture in the lives of many residents and visitors to the area.
Pharmacist Daniel Marshall and the team are continuing to showcase exactly why they are experts in their field with their experience, friendly and exceptional customer service.
Daniel said they aimed to make their customers feel welcome.
“We want to know all our local customers on a personal level and make them feel welcomed almost as part of our family,” he said.
“There is nothing better than getting to know our customers, having a laugh with them but also being able to give them qualified advice when it comes to their health concerns.
“I often have people discussing their medicine concerns with me because often pharmacies are the first place people visit when they need non-emergency health advice and we can help them out or refer them to their GP or other health professional when required.
“People can often feel unsure about medication, what it’s for, what does it do, benefits versus risks, side effects, long term effects, how important is it that they take the medication, what to do if they miss a dose.
“I am more than happy to help educate people about their medications, help them manage their medication and discuss concerns they may have about their medication.
“It is the convenience of having that person they are comfortable with to discuss their concerns.”
In an effort to continue to provide their customers with all the products they need right here in Childers, since opening in 2012, Childers Pharmacy shop has been extended and the retail space doubled to offer a larger range of over the counter medications, vitamins, gifts, fragrances, cosmetics and more.
“Since opening in 2012 the town has really supported us and allowed us to expand and double our retail space.
“We aim to continue to provide great customer service and customers have really responded to that.
“We are a proud supporter of many local community organisations and sporting clubs.”
Childers Pharmacy also provides a free blood pressure check-up service, a free app or SMS reminder service to help people manage their medication, they can store people’s scripts on file so customers never lose them again and also help customers manage their medication with aids such as medication packing.
